Since Gavin has LCA, Troy and I both carry the defective gene. We carry the defective gene, but we are not affected by gene. Our children are, or rather that chance that our children will be affected, exists.
This means, it is hereditary, and each of our children that we have has a chance of being born with LCA.
A 25% chance.
I have heard many different opinions about those who have this information, and opting to or opting not to, have another child.
If you had a child that was born with a hereditary, genetic condition, and you had the facts that 25% of every pregnancy would result in that genetic condition being dominant, would you have another child?
Why or why not?
I know this answer will definitely vary, given the condition, but some have very hard stances one way or not. Explain your answer in the comments, I would love to get some more opinions on this. It's not talked aobut too often, and there is no right answer - just opinions.
